    I believe it was made by Hopkins & Allen as a "hardware store gun" for a Missouri-based hardware store.Value is as a decorator/curiosity only, would advise against shooting it.

    A.D.'s correct as usual. Probably ok to shoot if in proper mechanical condition, but much better permanently on display in a den.It's not worth taking a risk when the value of the gun will be pressed to exceed $35.00 and your fingers... Well, that's a different story!
